After a slew of legal setbacks and an acquittal last year, Jonathan Marshall is getting a bit of a break.

A judge has granted a motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the star’s family against the estate of former NBCUniversal executive James Murdoch.

The judge ruled that a jury could have heard Marshall’s family’s argument that he was too ill to be a lawyer.

He is now on the brink of getting out of a $1.9 billion lawsuit filed against the family, but it is unclear when that could happen.
